It’s kinda funny how 7 year old photos I took overpower everything I shot in the last month. I don’t need to tell you (again) that I’m suffering (AGAIN!) from a photographers block which eventually took drastic measures – going through my archive.
I went to England 7 years ago. 7 years ago I was 21. Time sure does fly. I remember feeling all cool with a brand new Nikon D80 and a kit lens (Nikkor 18-135mm DX) while flying over there. How I wish I knew then what I know now. Coming to England is not something happening to you everyday and I wish I could go back in time and give a few photo tips to myself. Firstly, I’d be to shoot in raw. Ines, always shoot in raw! Then, prior to my trip, I’d invest in a prime lens (which I did, almost half a year later). And last, shoot more! Yes, I have a couple of folders filled with my England photos but the majority seems to be multiple photos of the same scene. And this couple of photos are the biggest bunch that was actually usable (along with my Brighton photos). Let me remind you, I was in the UK for 10 days. That trip was my big lesson in photography which made me realize I should grab to any photo chance possible and to make a plan before the trip. In the next 7 years, I’ve been to Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and loads of other beautiful places but that amateur trip to England will always be my biggest photo regret. Do you have any photo regrets? Hehe. God bless guys and happy New Year, once again!
